"A creative brief is the first, and the most important document, in any communications campaign." Steve McNamara, international award-winning Creative Director.
San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2010
Smart marketers use a creative brief to specify a communication or sales objective, and provide the creative team with the information to accomplish that objective. Today, advanced creative briefs ask for consumer insights, probe psychological tensions related to the purchase decision, as well as explore imaginative ways to use media, such as ambient and social media.
“To update our creative briefs, we interviewed marketers and strategic planners in Europe, Asia and North America. And collected feedback from over 300 writers and art directors,” said Steve McNamara, AdCracker.com's Creative Director.
According to McNamara, “A creative brief is the first and the most important document in any communications campaign. It’s the road map to capturing attention, inspiring interest and motivating sales action.”
The AdCracker creative briefs cover every type of advertising project, from TV to print ads, from emails to websites, from digital direct response to social media campaigns.
